Just because you want you home beautifully decorated for the holiday season, does not mean you have to spend a lot. You can still have a beautifully decorated home with these frugal Christmas Decoration ideas. I like to change-up rooms every once in a while as I too get bored with looking at the same decorations each year. I also thought I would beef up my Cookie Exchange Party theme this year and add a special Cookie Exchange Table scape, which also make a great Holiday Kids table idea too. I found some amazing and inexpensive decorations ideas. Who knew Dollar General had so many Christmas Decorations and accessories. I thought my daughter was going to have a fit, we spent a good hour in the store changing up my ideas for Dollar General Holiday décor the kids table or cookie exchange decoration ideas. After much deliberation this is the stock pile of items I found at Dollar General I found these festive and cookie exchange ornaments at our local Dollar General store. At only $1 each they would make adorable party favors too. I already had this Chandelier look going so I was working off that idea. What you need for a Cookie Exchange Party Tree:
- 2 foot artificial tree
- Festive wreath
- Cupcake ornaments
- Gingerbread ornaments
- Cookie cutter ornaments or cookie cutters
- Small Candy Canes
- Hot Glue
- For the Cookie Exchange Tablescape I used a 2 foot tree I already had, but Dollar General does sell similar trees. Use the festive wreath as the base of the tree. Be sure to hide the burlap if the tree already has some
- I hot glued a few of the cupcake ornaments onto the wreath for a more festive look
- Finish decorating the tree with the cupcakes, and cookie cutter ornaments. Place a few of the mini candy canes on the tree.
- I think it came out well and super festive. As I thought before, for Cookie exchange Party Favors you can fill the tree with enough ornaments for the guests and just have them take one on their way home.
- Play these fun cookie exchange party games
I also found these adorable items to make a kids table settings. Use a sharpie add each name on the belly of the ornament and place it on the plate as a placeholder. Use these mini stockings as silver ware settings holders. You can also use the stockings for gift ideas. Use the inexpensive plastic ware to hold candy or crayons and paper. So here you go, for under $25 I was able to transform our table for two different occasions, a cookie exchange party and kids holiday table. Will you be attending a cookie exchange this year?
